IDAHO FALLS – A man is in custody after allegedly driving over 100 mph down Interstate 15 near Idaho Falls.
Around noon, a detective in an unmarked car spotted the driver on the interstate, Idaho Falls Police spokeswoman Jessica Clements said. The driver got off at the Sunnyside exit, and the detective turned on his red and blue lights, but the driver didn’t pull over until the Maverik gas station on Sunnyside and Yellowstone, according to Clements.
He stepped out of the car in an “aggressive manner,” she said, and the detective called for backup.
Idaho Falls Police, the Bonneville County Sheriff’s Office and Idaho State Police responded.
The man was taken into custody. When an EastIdahoNews.com reporter arrived at the Maverik, he heard the man screaming from the back of a police car.
The man was booked into the Bonneville County Jail and or cited for misdemeanor charges of reckless driving, possession of an open container of alcohol by a driver, resisting arrest, attempt to flee or elude an officer and malicious injury to property.
